Standing out above everything olso
In tho riowa of 'tho week, looms, Iho
Tact that tho United 8tntos la to Iry
the aoleottvb conscription plan from
the very boRlhlilnR of tho war, a plan
which MrtKlftml' adopted only utter
mouths undo'rilio old volutftuur sys

Scnato took the smo aotlo'nnnd tho
"bill Saturday aftornoon, and tho
the ntfjht session. How soon con
Ktrlptlon will bo Into effect has not
"been definitely deoldod, hut It will
"be tried at leapt before September.
On the first draft. 600,000 men arc
to he raised.
Oregon, especially Central and
Eastern OrcRou will bo peculiarly at
tested by tlto draft. Tho population
lielnE so larsoly agricultural will
mean that nn unusually largo per
centage oT cUglblc In tho cities and
towns will bo called on to serve,
physical requirements permitting, as
conscription will bo carried out on
tho theory that tho fnrmor Is more
-valuable In his work keeping up the
country's food supply, than under
nrms In tho trenches. On tho first
draft 1041 men will be taken from
each congressional district, It Is es
timated. Qonforonces between the Allied
commissioners, and tho heads of de
partments of tho United States gov
ernment havo oontlnuod through the
week, and It stands agreed that the
Allies stand more In ured of Amer
ica's provisions than of her soldiers.
Tho appointing of a food dictator,
or a commission wKh dictatorial pow
ers to tako charge of tho food prob
lems of a major part of tho world.
Is ono of the possible outcomes of
the conference. In addition, how

than thoy are now being bultt. It Is
also asked that the part of tho

"War legislation has occupied the
entire attention of Congress. Cen
sorship of telephone, telegraph and
rbales. wbere the use of these means
nf communication beoraes an Inter
national matter, has gone Into ef
fect, and the culmination of prepar
edness was reached In the passing
yesterday of the Array and Navy bill
providing an appropriation of $2.
b27.000.000. the biggest single ap
propriation of the kind over made.
Word that a new peace move Is to
he mado In the Reichstag by Chan
cellor von Oothmann Hollwog, Is ex
citing little comment In Washing
ton. It Is known that If tJermany
Is morely making a political or strat
egic more, that the offort will fall.
The reason for Chile's failure to
take sides against Germany Is ap
parently revealed In tho rapnrt that
a F6cra( treaty has been in exist

Secretary of Statu Lansing warned
the nation yesterday of the gravity
of the submarine situation, declar
ing that the destruction of shipping
In tho last week has totalled 400,000

After a most strenuous campaign
to force tho Germans from the west

and Germans nro hastily rushing
more men to tho front to renow tho
conflict. Along tho French lines,

German positions, Tho allied forces
havo maintained their ndvautagu over
tho Teutons, hut nro forcing the en
emy back only by Infinitesimal de
groes. Tho ono report made by Gen
eral llnlg, commander In chief of the
Hrltlsh army, Is "satisfactory prog
roes." while tho Gofmnn critics con
tinue to report that the retreat of
tholr army Is merely a "strategic"
ono. The strike In Germany In up
paroutlv unabated In Its stringency.
Another epoch In the history of

"Plant a Garden, and Grow Your

II end by storm during tho'last two
weeks. Scores of back yards that
have never been productive or raised
more than weeds are .rapidly being
converted into garden plots.
Have you tried to purahnse onion
sets so far this yoar? It's almost an
Impossibility to get them! One
merchant received a big shipment of
onion sets the other day, and In-fore
night the entire lot was gone.
Demands have been exceedingly
heavy for garden tools hot,, rakea
and spade. Garden seeds, say mer
chants handling this commodity, are
going fast, and Indications point to
a busy summer season In Dend.
Vacant lot planting will probahly
t on In full farce this coming wrk.
Many lots In various parts of town
have been conserplted and Mill b
